Hey guys, I plan on installing a whole new sound system in my bugeye. From some research, it seems that people mostly upgrade the "Big 3" which include head unit, amp and sub. Found some great subs online, they are the MTX 1200 Watt Terminators. My understanding is that I should get an amp that is big enough, thus at least a 1000 Watt amp. Now, I would also like to upgrade the stereo and head unit. There are a few that are decent and do the job.
My main issue is will my alternator be strong enough to handle this new system? I would like to know before I break stuff in my car, would rather get a new alternator and battery if required than to fry the ones I have now.
I am open to recommendations, my budget for this upgrade is around $400.
